Ahmedabad - Mumbai - Pune route is using Electric DC line, once it will get converted to AC line it will add speed. Also IR are planing to add two more lines on this route so wait for some time. for Highspeed Train

The DC Electric system is used around Bombay (This includes Mumbai CST - Kalyan, Kalyan - Pune, Kalyan - Igatpuri, Mumbai CST - Belapur - Panvel, and Churchgate - Virar). There are plans to change this to 25kV AC by 2010.
Throughout the rest of the country, on all electrified routes, AC Electric system is used.

Thanks for your information. Well, I am aware that there is 40% jack up in kms. between Roha and Mangalore, but the saving in kms by going through this route as against earlier long route will almost equalise the fares or even result in saving. eg. the kms distance between Mumbai CSTM to Trivandrum via Konkan Rly route and Via Pune earlier long route is drastically reduced. Apart from this considerable saving in travel time, one gets in bonus.

Despite the train time is very much ideal for Surat people, the occupancy level is abysmally low. Just replace this train by Jan Shatabdi type and provide both ACCC / II class compartments only. Will then be a big, big success. Also the pressure on Flying Ranee and other passing fast trains at Surat would ease. However stop at Borivali / Andheri is must for the success.

Not only Borivali/Andheri but also at Valsad , Navsari as both are district place & 1 min halt at both station is not that bad
